This is Lecce's debut season since their return to Serie A, so they have not had a good debut. The Red and Yellow had just one win in their opening 13 fixtures, but they improved. By mid-February, the team looked more like an elite midfielder than an underdog but suffered a severe setback. They have suffered eight defeats in the last ten meetings, a 1:1 draw with Sampdoria and a 1:0 win over Udinese. Lecce is now just 16th in the standings, with a chance of relegation to Serie B.
Verona is another team that is having a tough start to the season. Only one win in their opening 16 games was a disaster. They didn't look like they'd be able to pull off a comeback, but they're slowly climbing out of the bottom of the standings. In the last five rounds, the team suffered just one defeat - a painful one - from Inter 0:6. At the same time, they drew 0:0 and 1:1 with Napoli and Cremonese, respectively, and even managed to beat Sassuolo and Bologna 2:1. Now Verona sits 18th in the table, only behind La Spezia from 17th place on aggregate.
Expert Betting Tips
At the moment, Marco Baroni's side is favorites to win the title in 16th place, four points ahead of the Bianconeri, but could reduce their lead to one point following a face-off. The team is in top form, as they have lost just once in their last five matches, but the Red Yellows have eight defeats in their previous ten outings. The visitors have won their last three head-to-head encounters, so it's a good bet that Verona doesn't lose.
Lecce and Verona are the teams that rank among the three worst in Serie A in terms of goals scored. In 33 games, the Red and Yellow have only managed 28 goals (0.85 average per game), while the Yellow and Blue have 27 goals against (0.82 average per game). Both totals are extremely poor, and the upcoming encounter will be a fight for survival in Italy's top flight, so the price of error will be many times greater than in any ordinary league game. With that in mind, the best option for the prediction seems to be Both teams to Score - No, and separately, we should look at a bet on Simone Verdi's goal.
